Swim Meets


How do I know which club is organizing the meet my swimmer is attending?
In the members area, go to "Meet List". Any meet your swimmers group is checked off may be a meet for your swimmer. Verify with the coach if this is the case for you
Where do I find the meet package?
Meet Packages will be posted on the "Meet List" page of the Member Area of the Website
What kind of information is included in the Meet Package
The meet package will include the warm up times. Also the coaching staff usually will communicate the warm up times.
How do I find the events that my swimmer is entered in.
These are posted on the office window and will be in the "Member Accounts" page of the Member Area of the Website. Click on the meet name and all events will be listed.
What are psych sheets?
Psych sheets are a rank ordering of the swimmers entered per event at a particular meet.
How is a swimmer seeded if he/she has never competed in an event?
Most often swimmers are entered NT (no time) and seeded in the slowest heat . This means that they will swim in the first heats of an event. Sometimes swimmers are given estimated times by the coaches.
How long are achieved times valid for?
A lifetime best is a lifetime best. However, for provincial meets, only times produced during the current or previous year may be used for entry purposes. For SNC meets, it is a 2 year window.
What are time trials?
Time trials are official competitions used to provide a race opportunity for a small number of participants. They are used for last minute qualifying for major meets (Central Regions and up) and to allow for a record attempt prior to an age up by a swimmer.
When and how often do time trials take place?
Time trials usually take place during our normal training time. They can happen 2 – 5 times per year.
What does it mean that a meet is sanctioned?
A meet is “sanctioned” when Swim Ontario has given its stamp of approval on the competition or time trial.
How is it determined which swimmers participate in relays?
The coaches will generally try to create the fastest possible relays starting with the “A” team and working back. Sometimes at certain meets coaches will “even out the top two teams” as to get both into the final. Usually life time best times and times done at the current meet are used for selection. Ultimately it is the coaches responsibility to select the team as other factors such as current training and racing times and health of the swimmer will be brought into account.
